Pope Welcomes 7,000 Pilgrims from El Salvador in Vatican City

VATICAN CITY Pope Francis celebrated on Monday the canonization of a Salvadoran archbishop with thousands of pilgrims from his native land.

The pope held a special audience at the Vatican City with Cardinal Gregorio Rosa Chavez and about 7,000 pilgrims from San Salvador to commemorate the late Archbishop Oscar Romero.

The thousands of Salvadorans chanted in unison and asked the pontiff to visit El Salvador.

The audience, which included mass and traditional music, concluded with the pope giving a message of peace for the people of El Salvador.
